DGP Materials Handling (formerly Douglas Gillespie Plant) was one of the first companies in the UK to be accredited to deliver Thorough Examination Testing – the forklift truck’s equivalent to the MOT.
Every forklift in service is legally required to pass the Thorough Examination test. Importantly the user is responsible for ensuring that the truck has a valid document.
To become accredited to conduct the testing, DGP had to demonstrate the capability and commitment to adhere to a strict Quality Assurance Procedural Code and DGP’s documentation bears the distinctive quality mark that also appears on a special sticker applied to every truck that passes the examination. Only companies accredited to the scheme are allowed to use the certification and quality mark.
